The Cranbrook Cannons came out on top at the 3rd Annual Jen Hickling Memorial Slo-Pitch Tournament last weekend.

The tournament saw eight teams face off at the Tie Lake ball diamond in Jaffray from August 9-10.

The annual tournament, organized in dedication to Fernie local Jen Hickling who passed away to an aggressive form of cancer two years ago, was moved to Jaffray after a series of miscommunication between council and the organizers of the event.

Despite that initial disappointment, organizer Shi-ann Martin said that ultimately, “the tournament was awesome and everything went really well.”

Raffle tickets and 50/50 draws added to the tournament’s activities.

In honour of Hickling, the event also raised funds to help support cancer patients currently going through treatment including Tammy Stratton, Carmen Smith and the Fernie Friends for Friends cancer charity.
